Hi! I'm Kara Brodgesell, an East-Coast raised, West-Coast based photographer who has been shooting for over half of her life. As a visual storyteller at heart, I'm dedicated to the honest and artistic documentation of weddings. 

I want to help you remember how your day looked and how it felt. It’s an honor to be part of a wedding and I love to photograph it all- from new rings to old friendships, stolen peeks from the flower girls, the late-night taco truck, the handwritten escort cards, the shoes worn for the ceremony and the flip flops for after. The formal portraits and the moments in between- all of the things that make your day unique and unforgettable. I will be right out there with you on the dance floor, making sure that I don’t miss the dip of your first dance or Grandma getting down. 

My passion for photography started with my first darkroom photo class in high school and has continued through receiving a Fine Art degree at Wesleyan University, working for fashion photographers in New York City, and moving across the country to shoot full time in San Francisco.

I’ve had the great joy of photographing weddings in variety of locations- from a ranch in Petaluma to New York City’s biggest synagogue to Copenhagen's City Hall- and love seeing the way that each one reflects a couple's relationship. I look forward to every celebration and hope to hear about yours soon!
